I have selected a color through my "Formula Guide Solid Coated" printed swatch. The color is the Pantone 2310 C and somehow I can't find it in the Indesign "solid coated" digital swatch. Any clue why and where to find it?

Is it possible that the Pantone Formula Guide Solid Coated book published in 2021 is newer than the InDesign version released in late 2020?

One thing to watchout for with the current version is the PANTONE Bridge Libraries are supposed to be Pantone’s recommended CMYK simulations for the solid ink spots colors. When you click a Bridge swatch more icon there is an option to add the Bridge color to your swatches, but the color gets added as process Lab and not the listed CMYK value.
